The trick I didn't get for a while Samwise was that once I had slaved the MAV head to the SPI then getting it to lock with a TMS Forward Short needed to be done a few times dependant on range/conditions. Nudging the cursor even in track mode was what I was doing before, but it usually ended badly. Putting the MAV into closer FOV seems to help.
I'm also starting to experiment using the Force Correlate of the MAV H's to take out SAM's without getting so close, although not much luck yet. If I have to SEAD it seems JDAM is the way to go from up high? Also, just started to figure out using the HUD as a SPI when having a human JTAC, as it makes it easier than entering in a 9-line in the CDU manually, and get's the TGP at least near where I mean to start looking.
Wow, my acronym use has gone way up since I started back in the A10..
